Peter Cushing Classic 'The Beast Must Die' Getting Limited Edition Blu-Ray in the UK This June

Powerhouse Films is bringing UK fans a limited edition Blu-Ray release of director Paul Annett‘s 1974 British werewolf classic The Beast Must Die. On June 29th, 2020, the film will be available through the company’s Indicator series. Cover artwork and bonus features are listed below, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

Synopsis: “Calvin Lockhart (A Dandy in Aspic) and Marlene Clark (Ganja & Hess) have invited a disparate group of guests, including Peter Cushing (Corruption), Michael Gambon (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover) and Charles Gray (The Legacy), to their mansion in the English countryside. He believes one of them is a werewolf… and, before the weekend is out, he’ll find out who it is!

The last of Amicus’ famed horror productions, The Beast Must Die combines the country-house whodunnit with the werewolf shocker and adds a dash of blaxploitation for good measure.
